Pros:
aesthetic-- plays through a lawn area of a camp ground on the Muskegon River. I imagine that there will be non-dg'ers galore in the summer months.

Flow--poles have numbers, flow is reasonable with the map with the exception of 789 which are now in the same area as the rest of the course.
Cons:
everything else-- gaw, where to start. again this land is going to be swarming with campers in the summer months. the holes are VERY short and there are no tee areas, just tee from the previous pole. the flow is somewhat easy but somewhat not. the numbers on the poles are small and you're never really sure where to throw... #5 as said is about the only star of this course. but the risk of ending up wet might distract people from actually throwing on this hole.

Pros: This course did have a couple of interesting highlight holes. Shooting down the slight incline, under the trees on #3 was interesting, as was the route to the #4 hole tucked into the woods, but the true gems in this otherwise blah course were #5 and #6. #5 has you shooting directly along a wire fence line that bars access to a good-sized drop down to the river. The prevailing winds also work against you, pushing your disc towards the OB water. Both of us held our breaths as our discs drifted farther and farther out over the river......then dramatically dove left and dropped to the safety of dry land. Pshew! #6 was a wide open, long hole with the pin under a huge tree - a great chance to let those drives fly!
Cons: This course is a single pole layout, with no marked tee area; you merely start at the corner of the tennis courts, then make your next drive from the pole you just holed out on. The only course markings are small marker numbers at the top of each pole. The map was useful for the front 6, since several of the poles are in sight at any given time. However, the map is so vague, we never did find the tee marker for #7 (on the other side of the access road), or any sign of #8 or #9.

We talked with 1 camper who said they just play from the #6 hole pole to the #7 pole, but that had us throwing over 5 boat trailers then blind throws across both the main entrance road and the service road. Ick. He also mentioned that #8 and #9 are buried in a very heavily wooded area. After searching for several minutes, we just gave up.
Other Thoughts: If you happen to already be at the campground for something else and just get the itch to throw a few, the front six will entertain you for a few minutes. Other than that, don't bother to drive out of your way to play this course! Seriously.
